The Show/Hide Eyeball in UI Design
Derek Torsani

I think that main strength of the hamburger icon is that it hints at what will happen next by providing a visual representation of a menu. The show hide eye icon does not really convey what will be shown or hidden. However I conceed there will be certain situations where this will be more effective such as the password form example you have given.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
